3 Essential Tips to Become the Florist Everyone Wants at Their Event

Apr 22, 2024

If you’re looking to stand out as a florist in the event industry, it’s all about making meaningful connections with potential clients from the first interaction. 


Here are 3 ways I make sure clients will book with me:

1. I reply instantly to their inquiry.

I want to be "top of mind" with my potential clients. As in, I want to be the number one florist they are thinking about and remember.  That means when they send in an inquiry, I want to engage them INSTANTLY. I do this with automations that are interesting, bring them value and help them get to know me better. Meanwhile in the background, I am creating an estimate and mood board to knock their socks off.

2. I keep the booking process short and simple.

I don't want to weigh them down with a million boring questions before I write their estimate. I dont need to know every detail, because details change anyway. With a few simple questions in the inquiry form I can actually write pretty accurate estimates and then they receive my prices and creative visions faster than everyone else's. 

3. I present ideas better than their own. 

I vibe off of the inspiration they have provided, but I seek to create an even better vision that they couldn't have thought of on their own. This builds trust and shows them that I get what they are going for and can take it up a notch from there.
